Knowledge Objects in Medical Pharmacology
The Association for Medical School Pharmacology has made the 2002, third edition available through their Web site. The edition describes the minimum essential knowledge in Pharmacology which should be taught to and mastered by students.
Subcommittee on Clinical Pharmacology
Of special interest are the recommendations of the Subcommittee on Clinical Pharmacology. The subcommittee identified three general subtopics for the teaching of Clinical Pharmacology to medical students. These areas include:
- a core of factual and conceptual information, i.e., clinical pharmacology "facts" that are distinct from the information taught in basic pharmacology courses.
- clinical pharmacological skills that students should master in order that they can effectively evaluate and prescribe drugs.
- clinical pharmacology attitudes and behaviors which students should develop as they mature to become prescribing physicians.
